Though he may not be the "king of the world," as he declared when accepting the Best Director Academy Award for Titanic in 1998, there's really no question that James Cameron is the king of 3D movies, thanks to the ground-breaking visuals of his 14-years-in-the-making sci-fi epic Avatar. Now, Cameron has "struck a deal with China" to ensure that the fastest-growing economy in the world gets in on the 3D wave. "If it's happening in 3D in China, we wanna be...right at the nexus of that," said Cameron in a recent interview. Cameron, excited about China's ambitious plans for the technology, is working on not only expanding the presence of 3D in Chinese theaters, but also to "live television broadcasts" in China, as well.
